I was thinking of going either Thursday or Friday. I'm debating between Anderson and Burchfield. Let me know if you want to meet up. Probably be right around 5ish.

Not to bad of conditions today. A few muddy spots and red and green, blue was in great shape, red had a few face slappers to watch out for, but nothing horrible.

There was a smallish tree that fell by the exit to the road on red, I just dragged that out of the way.

Trails were good today, couple of muddy spots on the Red trail. Only got a little bit of the Playground, but there was a very large tree down at the run out if the large ladder drop. This one will need a chainsaw to get moved.

Sorry for the crap photo, pulled it as a screen shot from my camera.

Are there any weekly ride groups in the area?

Some trees were cleaned out today and the trail is ready to ride. Thank you to MFawley.

Still a fair amount of little viney junk and weeds. Laps with a weed whip or hand trimmers are welcome anytime.

Someone had already cleaned up the new tree that fell at the beginning of blue. Thank you! It made taking out the last part of it super easy. I walked red backwards to the red/blue split clearing most of the face slappers.

Rode to Anderson today and removed as many of the down branches and trees from both green and red as I could. The trail is in pretty good shape other than green having a heavy amount of down branches on the drop section. I did not go through blue but red was in great shape and did not have too much downfall. If someone has a little saw we can clean up the drop pretty quickly.

How big of a tree? Hand saw or chainsaw?

Not sure exactly how big as there were a lot of them kind of all bundled together over the drop. I guess a chainsaw wouldnt hurt but I think a handsaw and a second pair of hands could get the job done. I can get out there to lend a hand tomorrow before the group rides start. I am free most of the day, I just don't have a saw lol.

I was able to get that section mostly cleared up. Still some leaves but all big stuff should be off the trail. Also i got the tree that was over the trail a little bit after the drop sections closer to the end. Green should be all clear now.
